I only participated in one carnival this week. My post, Resisting the Urge to Splurge - Financially, was included in the Carnival of Personal Finance #158 - Vampire Slaying Edition hosted by Mrs Micah.

Several posts around the finance blogosphere caught my eye and I'd like to share them with you. If you haven't read these posts already, be sure to check them out.

Cash Money Life warns against buying too much company stock. In the first few years of my career, our company stock was doing so well, I had the majority of my 401k in company stock. Luckily, I got rid of most of it before the stock took a tumble about a year ago and it hasn't recovered yet.

You think rising gas prices are making you consider doing crazy things? You aren't alone. SingleMa of Fabulous Financials is having the same problem.

Have you calculated your Financial Freedom Day? Lynnae @ BeingFrugal gives her thoughts on what Financial Freedom will mean for her.

Frugal Dad shares how they spent their Economic Stimulus Check. I should be receiving mine sometime in the next week; hopefully.
